The agreement gives Betsson Group full access to Scout Gaming’s DFS platform enabling them to offer a complete daily fantasy sports solution across its subsidiaries and to all its customers.

Scout Gaming’s platform is expected to be fully integrated into Betsson’s product offering in 2018.

“I’m delighted that Betsson Group, one of Europe’s leading online operators, has chosen Scout Gaming as their supplier. The agreement confirms that daily fantasy sports is rapidly gaining ground and is expected to be the next online gaming growth vertical” says Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternström.

“We have evaluated how to extend our sports offering and in particular the possibilities related to daily fantasy sports. Broadening our target audience as well as increasing loyalty among existing players are two key demands we can address with DFS. Scout Gaming not only offers a wide selection of sports but is also able to support local and niche events, which is important to us. Scout also offers the largest European liquidity network, which was an important consideration in our selection process, ” commented, Andy Broughton Braithwaite, Betsson Group’s Director of Gaming.
